Fresh green peas, also known as garden peas or sweet peas, are a type of edible pea that is harvested while still in the early stages of development. These peas are typically round and green, enclosed in a pod. They are known for their sweet and delicate flavor.

Fresh green peas are a popular seasonal vegetable and are often available in the spring and early summer months. They can be enjoyed raw or cooked, and they offer a crisp and slightly sweet taste. When cooked, they become tender and their natural sweetness intensifies.

These peas are commonly used in a variety of dishes, including salads, stir-fries, soups, stews, and side dishes. They can be added to pasta dishes, rice dishes, and vegetable medleys to provide color, texture, and a burst of fresh flavor. Fresh green peas are also a nutritious choice, as they are a good source of fiber, vitamins (such as vitamin K and vitamin C), and minerals (such as manganese and folate).

It's worth noting that fresh green peas should not be confused with snow peas or sugar snap peas, which are different varieties of peas commonly consumed with their pods. Fresh green peas are the round peas inside the pod, while snow peas and sugar snap peas are enjoyed with their edible pods.

How to eat fresh green peas?
Fresh green peas can be enjoyed in various ways. Here are some common methods for eating fresh green peas:

1. Raw: Fresh green peas can be eaten raw as a snack or added to salads for a crunchy and slightly sweet element. Simply remove the peas from the pod and rinse them before consuming.

2. Steamed or boiled: Steaming or boiling fresh green peas is a popular cooking method that helps to retain their vibrant color and nutrients. Steam or boil them for a few minutes until they are tender but still slightly crisp. You can then enjoy them as a side dish or incorporate them into other recipes.

3. Sautéed: Sautéing fresh green peas in a bit of oil or butter can enhance their flavor and texture. Heat a pan over medium heat, add some oil or butter, and toss in the peas. Sauté them for a few minutes until they are cooked to your desired tenderness. Sautéed green peas can be served as a side dish or used as a component in stir-fries, pasta dishes, or grain bowls.

4. Pureed: Fresh green peas can be pureed to create a creamy and smooth texture. Blending cooked green peas with a little liquid (such as broth or cream) and seasoning can result in a flavorful puree that can be used as a base for soups, dips, or spreads.

5. Mixed in dishes: Fresh green peas can be added to a variety of dishes to provide color, flavor, and nutrients. They can be tossed into pasta dishes, rice dishes, stir-fries, or vegetable medleys. They also pair well with other spring vegetables like asparagus and mint.

Enjoy the tender and sweet taste of fresh green peas in your favorite recipes or simply as a healthy snack.

Are green peas low FODMAP?
Fresh green peas are considered high in FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols).
They contain a type of carbohydrate called oligosaccharides, specifically fructans, which can be difficult to digest for some individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or other digestive disorders.

Monash University, a leading authority on the low FODMAP diet, recommends limiting the intake of fresh green peas during the elimination phase of the diet.
However, it's important to note that the FODMAP content of peas can vary depending on the ripeness and portion size.

If you are following a low FODMAP diet, it is advised to consult with a registered dietitian who specializes in the low FODMAP diet.
They can provide personalized guidance and help you determine your specific tolerances and dietary needs. They may be able to provide alternative options or suggest appropriate portion sizes to minimize any potential digestive discomfort.
